I must admit, the food is good, location is well within reach of the beach and with a few shop around, make a nice stop.

This hip diner has a fun vibe for hanging out, but the food is actually quite good as well. Not the cheapest, but it's worth it for the atmosphere.

I've eaten there on several occasions, and had great service and great food. Recently, I had the unfortunate circumstance to be waited on by a young man who couldn't care less about any of the diners he was serving. Not only did my five

Kids love it. They think it is just a coffee shop, but the menu offers lots for vegetarians and more adventurous eaters. Food is fresh.
The wait to sit is short, the wait for food is long.
The sandwiches are all great.
It is hard, but save room for dessert, you won't be disappointed.
Good prices.

I've eaten at the Hollywood Swingers and had a fine experience. The Santa Monica Swingers, however, is Greater L.A.'s worst restaurant. I've read other reviews that call the food fun and the waits long. Both true. And I will say that

We just went for breakfast this morning, after driving past it maybe a hundred times - and glad we finally stopped to try it out! And No, it has nothing to do with the movie Swingers! The decor is amusing and fun, with interesting tile

This is a cool diner that's open late night (thankfully). We would have starved after arriving on a 3hr. delayed flight from NY. It was busy in the A.M, but we were seated promptly and it seems to be full of wannabe stars. Our waiter was

Probably the best pancakes in Santa Monica. I prefer the buttermilk to the whole grain. And you really can't beat the servers in short skirts.

I like that I didn't pay very much at all for a big meal. They offer such great hangover food. Cool place for lunch. It's got very fun decor, awesome service (my waiters were funnnn to talk to), and they have really cheesy cheese fries.

I've never been to Swingers before Midnight. It's our hangover prevention late-night grub stop after we've been hitting the bars. And judging by the fact that Swingers is PACKED at 2am, it's the place to be after the bars close.

Swingers is always a good choice for those late night, post-partying cravings for greasy dinner food. The grilled cheese with avocado and tomato is a favorite. All the breakfasts are good too - but then again, it's hard to mess up

i think the swingin' days are over at swingers. for far too long, this glorified diner got away with a pretentious wait staff and an ecclectic menu. unfortunately, it seems like swingers is turning into the johnny rockets of the 21st century, and it just needs an injection of something new. maybe go preppy?

Excellent coffee and my vegan heart leaps that they have soy milk to put in it. Excellent menu with lots of yummy stuff for omnivores and many vegetarian options. This is not your average coffee shop. Trendy atmosphere and open very late.

At this Santa Monica branch of the original Hollywood diner, meatloaf and mashed potatoes harmoniously co-exist on the menu with tofu saute. The concept is comfort food with flair like a grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with tomato, grilled…
